Title: Cloverfield
Post by: Nanashi on November 04, 2007, 10:36:52 PM
For those of you who saw Transformers...remember that weird, unnamed trailer that played before it? Yeah, that's what "Cloverfield" is. So, how many of you are excited about this, and does any one have some theories about what the monster could be?

From what has been said it could be anything one thing that seems to stand out is this monster for Cloverfield (http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808/).

Still what is true and what is false information is unknown to me.

www.1-18-08.com

That's the official teaser site.

All it is is a bunch of pictures with some small hints and other stuff..

I know there are a few other sites like Slusho (somehow tied in, it was on a persons T-Shirt in the Trailer).

But for the 1-18-08 site, try flipping the pictures over.

They were passing out thoughs Slusho shirts at ComiCon so they must have something to do with the movie.

wtf why does that SO remind me of FF 10

I saw that picture awhile ago (4chan), and I don't think it's official. A lot of people said it reminded them of Sin, so yeah, I think it may just be some random art from a speculative (soon to be) fan.

holy shit, there is a ACTUAL trailer up for this movie now; it appears they are keeping the original look from the teaser, with the whole movie being seen throught the lens of a civilain camera/camcorder, givng it that first-person-account feel.

New Cloverfield Trailer(yes, Cloverfield is the official title) (http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808/)

Hey, maybe we should get a Colverfield gathering together. You know, go and see the movie as a group on opening night...hopefully. Just a matter of where.

Gathering/get-together or not, i'm seeing this regardless, mostly due to the fact that its different than a majority of the films out there today(more akin to The Blair Witch Project than anything else in the way its filmed); it has that sorta-indie look, mostly due to it literally being done from the perspective of one of the survivors during the attack.
Title: Re: Cloverfield
Post by: Nanashi on November 19, 2007, 09:47:41 PM
Well, it may not be from the perspective of a survivor, so much as it is the perspective of a victim. Supposedly, the movie is supposed to be a video that the military found in the ruins of the city after the attack.
Title: Re: Cloverfield
Post by: VictimX on November 19, 2007, 10:11:31 PM
It looks as if the camera is handed off to more then one person from the trailer.

Alright, wtf?! How does it remind you guys of Sin from FF 10. I've never played Final Fantasy  *gasp* I know never played it< I just never had the oppertunity! So plz explain to me.

d00d! I flipped the pictures and noticed that two of the pictures had like comments on the back of the photo before the monster and an other one written in chinese! but all the photos taken after the monster didn't have anything written on the back.

http://cloverfield.despoiler.org/index.php?title=Posters

There's a lot of interesting speculation on Unfiction right now based on the viral marketing for the movie. Some of the more common, well-defined ideas are this:

1. The monster is either similar to a whale or an oversized plankton/extremophile such as a water bear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_bear).
2. The drink "Slusho (http://www.slusho.jp)!" is either the lure for the monster, or the cause of the biohazard (see next point) or even the cure for it.
3. There's are smaller monsters running around, and that's probably related to the expanding girl silhouette in the trailer. Either the mini-monsters are born Alien-style, or they cause people to explode, or they are metamorphosed humans.

Interesting potential here for sure.

thread necroooo~

Man I have been dabbling in this cloverfield and it does look very interesting to watch

I know on wikipedia there have been some things about the film such as it being like the blair witch project

perhaps the cloverfield monster wont be shown till the end?

I know that the film makers wanted to keep the movie to not be leaked on to the internet such as the monster and all that jazz

If you translate the recipie for the picture of the chef, its in japanese which it recalls sprinkling something with the crab six times.

lulz this is amazing

"OMG look its a giant Crabs ! "

From the trailer I saw, so there's a big one probably walking/strolling around NYC and smaller ones/parasite like things infecting people.

the was a girl that looked semi zombie-ish with the pale skin and random blood splatters on her face, but she could have been in shock from other random diasters.

As for a gathering and if anyone is serious about it, you may want to move or start a new thread over in the gatherings section.

I'm still a maybe, but if enough ppl go, I'll jump on the bandwagon.

Funny how all mosters just want to destroy NYC.

wheres the love for the west coast? sheesh we only got the SF Goldent Gate Bridge being ruined by Mutants (Xmen3)

I wonder why Monsters dont like SF?  :P

well, we can make it a gathering out of it. something to start the new year anyway lol.

I'm curious about this movie as well. Part of me says that this is a reinvention of the chtulu mythos, but that's just me.
